Stachys General Information

Stachys are popular for edging or as groundcover. Soft, silvery felted foliage adds pleasing texture and contrast to a border. Best in full sun with good drainage. Nice for live wreath making. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Stachys Plant Care

Prefers evenly moist but well-drained soil. Deadhead to keep plants attractive and to keep from going to seed which declines the foliage. Do not prune for winter. Clean up foliage in spring. Can be divided every 4-5 years in spring by removing rooted sections and transplanting. Benefits from partial shade in hot climates.
